Brewers Face Stadium Concerns; Possible Relocation

The 1st place Milwaukee Brewers have been faced with their toughest challenge of the year. After a Thursday visit by MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, the Ballpark is seeking mandatory renovations that will cost the organization $428 million. The Brew-Crew has played in the American Family field since 2001. The lease for the Ballpark lasts until 2030 and with renovations can extend to 2043. A State-Commissioned study shows that the field needs Concourse/Bathroom Upgrades, roof repairs, and new outfield panels. These repairs are being sought by 2030.

The Brewers study shows repairs costing $428 million, while the State study estimates between $576 and $667 million. Manfred’s conference included the following statement, “I remain confident that the Brewers are a great asset for the fans here in Milwaukee, and that the governmental entities are going to find a way to fund the obligation they agreed to when this ballpark was built.”
